Lancashire Mind is an independent mental health charity, delivering our impactful strategy that has been co-created with the people of Lancashire. We reach over 10,000 people each year.

We’re an active member of the national Mind Federation, linking us with over 100 other local Mind organisations across England and Wales, providing excellent opportunities for good practice sharing and partnership working.

Our purpose is to support people in Lancashire to achieve the best mental health and wellbeing possible.

We are seeking Trustees who share our values and our passionate belief that prevention and resilience are the key to achieving mental wellbeing. We encourage those with lived experience of mental health to undertake leadership opportunities, which includes the board.

We strive to continuously improve the governance of the charity. This includes conducting an annual trustee skills audit. This has informed our current recruitment round; we are therefore particularly looking for applicants with one or more skillsets in marketing & communications, HR and people, legal & compliance, business development and/or fundraising, clinical health and/or mental health systems expertise.

Lancashire Mind also welcomes applications from high performing and well-connected candidates who feel that they offer other relevant skills/connections not listed above.

Lancashire Mind’s Board has three subcommittees which have delegated authority to oversee various elements of governance. These are the: Finance & Audit, Sustainability & Growth and People & Governance subcommittees. We are looking for 3 trustees, 2 of which who may be interested in transitioning into a Chair role for the following committees.

The People & Governance Subcommittee oversees key areas of HR, including policy, board and staff performance, wellbeing and development. It also oversees key areas of governance such as Safeguarding, Information Governance and Health & Safety.

The Finance & Audit Subcommittee oversees the financial governance of the organisation to ensure financial sustainability and finance practices and procedures are maintained consistently to satisfy statutory and regulatory requirements.

We also ensure that trustees feel supported in their role and offer mentoring support to new trustees during their induction period.

At Lancashire Mind our work is positive and rewarding, with a passion for improving mental health and wellbeing shared across the organisation.
